The "S" Dress Returns

I feel like I'm in Jammy Dress mode right now. This dress certainly supports that theory. 
The "S" Dress returns! 

  • Dress - Uniqlo x Marimekko, thrifted; last seen here in December 2022 with purple shoes
  • Booties - Truths Suzie, Fluevog, consignment; last worn here in October with magenta and boss pants
  • Leather coat (below) - Jeno de Paris, vintage 70s, thrifted; last seen here in April

Tights, slip, dress, boots. Done! 
S is for Sheila. 

The colours are richer in Real Life - that's an indigo-grape purple and a forest-mossy green. 
Purple and green always make me think of the Incredible Hulk. Rar! 

No pockets, but that's okay. 
The undulating design makes up for it. 

Outerwear  - carrying on the theme. 
I love this coat. Grommet belt! It is not the original belt, which is bizarrely tiny. 

Very mysterious. 

Just a touch of matchy green in the scarf. 

  • Silk scarf - Fluevog
  • Beret - consignment
  • Gloves - Danier Leather

The stuff: 
More grommets! 

Matchy bling: 
More green and purple. 

  • Glass snake pendant - Venice, gift from Mom
  • Silver/malachite bangle - Mexican, thrifted, Sidney
  • Fang bangle - Alexis Bittar, consignment, Sidney
  • Silver/obsidian ring - vintage mall, gift from L
  • Silver/amethyst ring - vintage mall
  • Silver/aventurine ring - consignment
  • Silver/malachite ring - consignment
  • Earrings - Bermuda, Mom's

Things that make me happy.


  1. I LOVE everything today; the dress, those BOOTS, the bling ! Lise PS: I see your hair is so much lighter, like you said. Incredible.

  2. S for success! Comfort, ease, warmth and style, all the elements for a successful outfit. I think of this as a jammy cuddle dress because the S curves wrap the body in cuddles. :)
    Also am a fan of your purple accessories with their bold color.

    Cheers, Laurie in Olympia

  3. I love that dress - and the leather coat! I wish I looked half as good as you in a beret, all sultry and spy-like. I just look like I've escaped from an institution! xxx

  4. I love your Uniqlo x Marimekko dress very much indeed, with the S for Sheila and for strength at the start of another working week! Your green leather trench is yet again one of my favourites. And I do agree with Vix on you looking all spy-like in a beret! Oh, and that glass snake pendant is the stuff of dreams! xxx

  5. S is for super, stylish, sultry, sensational! I really like it and the colours!x
